Rural Action Derbyshire
rural action
Across Derbyshire, nearly 20% of properties are off the main gas network. This goes up to 40% in the Derbyshire Dales. Heating oil and LPG are the main sources of energy for the rural properties, the price of which can vary considerably. 
We have been running a community oil buying scheme since November 2011 to help reduce the cost of heating oil by negotiating with oil suppliers for a bulk order.  Buying oil through our scheme helps secure a good oil price for everyone, especially beneficial for those on a low income. We do not inflate our prices for profit. 
Anyone can join - homeowner or tenant, business or community building, farms, caravan parks and holiday lets. Standard delivery vehicles are used.
How it works
  • Register on the website with details of your property and tank location.
  • Log on to order oil. Specify the number of litres you require (minimum 500 litres) and whether you require an additive.
  • We order oil every 2 weeks and you can log on and order anytime during the 2 week window.*
  • We contact oil suppliers to get the best price we can. You receive an email with oil price and total cost. Payment is made and the oil is delivered within 10 working days.
What if someone doesn't have access to the internet?
Although the scheme is run via a secure website, people can still join even if they don't have access to a computer or the internet. Contact the Oil Buying team at RAD on 01629 592970 or 07540 736118 and an account can be set up and managed on their behalf. This is ideal if you have family members on oil that do not or cannot use the internet.
